Ed Buziak creates ‘hand painted’ artworks… literally, by hand!

For you, my prospective patron, owning any of my personal hand-prints is proof-positive that you have a unique piece of evidence of my identity. When I say ‘unique’ I mean that because there is no exact repeatability to my methods or output, every time I coat my hand with acrylic paint of whatever colour, tint or shade, it touches a different portion of my skin and, on contact with the paper receptor, reveals a different set of palm and fingerprints. And, each of these two or three-colour prints will have a different ‘register’ every time. There will only be a limited number of these hand-prints created at Levels 1 and 2 of this theme.

Each acrylic-on-paper hand-print will be created during my daily morning period of meditative Tai-Chi… the first colour applied immediately before my routine, and the second colour when my exercise programme reaches completion. My desire is therefore that positive energy is put into each individual piece of artwork… with the flow and movements of my hands during this exercise being part of this artistic creative act. And if you place your own hand in contact with the print of my own hand we will have made a connection… an 'artistic handshake' if you like, and a personal greeting.

As part of the 'patronage' everyone receives at least one tangible piece of original art and, as a bonus, one or more of my ebooks, downloadable as either an ePub or in the pdf format. The subjects I have written about for many years are a) Photography in general from my base in France, b) Postal history which I have assembled since childhood, and c) Image sales through stock photo agencies… they will be sent out in that order. Each tome has a minimum of 50 images accompanied by descriptive, anecdotal articles totalling tens of thousands of words… and will provide very informative and enjoyable reading!

I grab two lightweight canvas and metal folding stools so I can sit properly whilst sketching outdoors. The second folding stool acts as a small table for my materials… until a curious stranger comes by to chat, stays, and sits next to me (then they have to hold my sketching materials!).
